Researching Colonial Ancestors
Do you have ancestors that lived in Colonial times? Have you found them all? Do you have any brick walls involving these Colonial ancestors? Perhaps DACGS member Jeannie Kowalik can help you with these brick walls and help you discover your Colonial ancestors. On the February 10 Society meeting, Jeannie will present some of the techniques that have helped her find many of her tenth great grandparents.
Jeannie Kowalik is a member of the Doña Ana Chapter NSDAR, Doña Ana County Genealogical Society and Lycoming County Genealogical Society (Pennsylvania). Her family history research started 15 years ago, and her family tree includes nearly 7,900 people. Many of her family lines extend to 10th great grandparents and beyond. Jeannie's online research has uncovered 11 Revolutionary War patriots, Indian scalpings, an Andover witch hanging, and Dutch immigrants from the early 1600s.
The February 10 meeting of the Doña Ana County Genealogical Society will be conducted online remotely using the ZOOM application.
